Dipl.-Ing. ATP CFII
Founder and Manging Director
My entrepreneurial roots span information technology and computer sciences from the first days of computer graphics and PC industry in the early 80‘s to a successful IPO in the late 90‘s, quite turbulent times during the internet bubble burst period, and latest the financial markets as an independent investor and portfolio manager. Aviation related my experience dates back 25 years since earning the first pilot license. I today hold US ATP and flight instructor CFII licenses. 2000+ hours of flight time include many Atlantic crossings in light singles and twins.
My first SR22 experience dates back to 2003 and the G1 SR22. A friend, whom I had inspired to get his pilot‘s license a few years before, purchased a brand new G1 SR22 from the factory in Duluth. The Atlantic crossing to Europe seeming a bit too challenging for the fresh instrument licensed pilot I jumped in to take care of aircraft delivery and ferry flight for him, as I already had done this trip several times. That‘s how, simply said, 'Cirrus just got me'. Coming from a different industry and used to fast paced innovation and permanent adoption of new technologies, I was simply amazed and thrilled to see what finally had started to arrive and became possible in modern general aviation aircraft design and especially avionics. After many hours in Entegra based late G1 and early G2 SR22 the ideas for SimplyFlying and in sequence EMAXplus™ were born.
